Now this is impressive. Country singer Tim McGraw is honoring military families by giving away 25 mortgage-free homes.

McGraw has partnered with the charity Operation Homefront and Chase, an organization dedicated to assisting service members, military families and wounded warriors, to help out people serving our country. The Academy of Country Music’s ACM Lifting Live program and The Premier Group have also made contributions.

While on his “Brothers of the Sun” tour with other country singing sensation Kenny Chesney, McGraw will kick his charitable goodness into action. The tour begins on Memorial Day in New York City, where the two will perform for military members.

“My sister’s a veteran, my uncle’s a veteran, my grandfather was a veteran, one of my best friends is a veteran,” McGraw said. “I’ve known people my whole life who are in service to America. And I think in my position to be able to do something like that is probably the ultimate thing. So to be able to go on tour and provide sort of a stable foundation for a veteran and their family is something I really look forward to.”

Anyone can watch the concert live via YouTube, along with military members who can watch through The Pentagon Channel website.

“It’s going to be a great opportunity to set a family on track that’s done so much for us and my family,” McGraw said. “So I can’t imagine a better thing to do on tour. It’s going to be fun – I mean every tour date we’re going to be out there.”
